• Roadside Junking

    Junking is never without adventure and my recent trip to Florida proved just that!

    I love the fact that the word "junk" has gone through a bit of a transformation over the past 10 years, and I would like to think I had something to do with it. "Junking" has even become a verb - "to find a great vintage element or remade/repurposed item to incorporate into our home".

    But the roadside junk stop just outside of Ocala, Florida reminded me that sometimes it is still just junk! I loved rummaging through the good, the bad and the ugly to find the hidden gems that resided among them! Bet you're jealous.

    As I sifted through the piles, an elderly woman sat in a chair in the midst of the junk under an umbrella with her cash belt snug across her tummy announcing prices as needed. The junk was cheap and dirty. There was no air conditioning, no restrooms, no packing material or bags, and no returns! No kidding. Die hard junking!

    Planning has begun for the next Bachman's Ideas House, with a summer theme and lots and lots of brand new projects to share. Good news...just heard Flea Market Style magazine will go into a second printing next week! Life is busy but I am having a ball!
